I prefer being engaged in life, so the phone ringing let's me know that someone cared enough to pick up the phone and dial my number (even though that is frequently a telemarketer).. after all, an idle mind is a dangerous place to linger...

The only phones that ring are those of people doing stuff.

The feast or famine of most agent business cycles reflect that. The activity surrounding the business we do, creates more opportunity. When the inventory is sold....crickets.

Level out the peaks and valleys.

The more you work, the more you work.  In other words, business leads to more business.

That's why when you are busy, the phone rings.  But when you spend your days on the couch watching TV, the phone doesn't ring.
